Swedish ORC turbine manufacturer Againity AB and Swiss boiler manufacturer Schmid AG Energy Solutions have signed a collaboration agreement for delivery of small-scale CHP plants. Existing as well as new boiler plants can now add-on an ORC turbine, allowing the plant to combine its renewable heat production with local weather-independent power production.
“We are impressed by the technology and the modularity of Againity’s product”, says Marcel Danuser, Head of Export Sales at Schmid energy solutions.
The ORC turbine can be connected to hot water boilers as well as steam boilers. With local power production, the plant cuts electricity and power grid costs while releasing capacity on the local grid and contributing to more renewable electricity production.
“We are very glad that Schmid has chosen us as a supplier for Schmid boilers, to complement their existing heat offer with electricity production”, says David Frykerås, CEO of Againity. “We are impressed by the performance of Schmid boilers and their network in Central Europe as well as globally.”
